  1. Hi Susan, Fabulous idea!! Have you considered holding a “virtual” reading group. I’m in Brisbane so can’t make the Melbourne venue. You could hold a twitter chat at a specific time. Using perhaps #AAA (Australian Aboriginal Art) as the hashtag. I’d definitely log in from Qld. BTW – glad to see you survived Bari & are safely home.

    • Hi Leesa,
      Great to hear from you.
      Just survived, thanx to you lot.
      I’d be hopeless at Twitter. can’t even answer an email within a week. Kyra reckons skype could work, whadaya think?
      Susan

      p.s. we should read the proppaNOW book and recent catalogue. do you know how we might get an order form?

  2. Dear Kira, Susan,

    Great initiative! I’d also be interested in a the possibility of virtual participation. Let me know if any opportunities develop?

    With thanks,

  14. Hi,
    Your reading group sounds great. I am currently a postgrad student at UWA. My focus is on Indigenous literature between 1930 and 2000, mainly the work of David Unaipon until Kim Scott. I am moving to Melbourne for personal reasons in the near future and would love the opportunity to connect with people who have similar intellectual interests. Let me know what I need to do to get involved.
    best, Robert

  28. Hi Susan!
    what do I need to do to get notice of when this group is meeting? Unless I remember to look this blog up, I don’t know when it is. Is it possible to get email notification?

    Thanks and hopefully I will be able to come to the next one!
    Dominique

    • Hi Dominique, I’m just about to announce the next meeting and so I looked up how to generate email notifications. In the support section of this site it says: ‘The email address you used when registering your WordPress.com account is listed on your Account Settings page, and under Users → Personal Settings in your dashboard. Notifications from WordPress.com will be sent to that email address.’ I hope that helps!
      See you soon,
      Susan
